Stop Customer Churn and Employee Turnover So You Can Grow Faster and Drive Revenue

You can't keep customers if they can't figure out how to use your products and services.

And you can't keep your employees, if they can't be successful doing their job.

I produce user conferences, professional development seminars and virtual instructor-led webinars for conference organizers, associations and organizations.

I also develop self-paced, online customer success and employee onboarding training courses for clients.


What Attendees Say About Eric’s Seminars


Professional Development Training

  • Teach end users how to get your software-as-a-service(SaaS) up and running faster so they can derive maximum value and remain a customer longer which means your churn rate goes down and your revenues go up.
  • Show employees how to use your information technology systems to get their jobs done so you can get them operational fast and spend less time teaching people the same thing over and over again.
  • Build a consistent, repeatable online corporate training program for onboarding new employees so you can get new hires operational faster and save yourself the aggravation of trying to figure out who needs to be trained in what.
  • Show channel partners how to utilize your sales enablement programs so they can sell more of your products and services faster, which means you can grow your business exponentially through independant sales reps.
  • Certify that everyone undertstands what's expected of them by including multiple choice questions throuhgout each online course, so you have a digital record of who's been trained in what that can be included in their employee file.

I have over 10-years experience leading conference, professional development training seminars and distance learning programs for a variety of audiences.

Conference Chairs Elizabeth Albrycht and Eric Schwartzman at the Digital Impact Conference in NYC

I produced five conferences for 400-500 attendees as founding chair of the Digital Impact Conference, hundreds of 2-day workshops for 30-40 attendees as well as dozens of virtual, instructor-led webinars.

And I've produced over a hunderd hours of self-paced, on-demand training used by clients such as the McKesson, Texas A&M, Entrust, Keller Williams, Inter American Development Bank, Yamaha and many others.

"It's often straightforward to identify a strategy needed to acheive a goal, but what trips up companies is figuring out how to execute the strategy once identified," writes Cal Newport in his book Deep Work.

I take people beyond just the "why" and teach them the "how" through step-by-step, live demonstrations and tutorials, so you can on-board employers faster and keep your monthly recurring revenue stable longer.

I've taught Professionals, Ambassadors, Military Leaders and Activists and I can teach your market too.

Multiple choice, integrated assessment testing.

Integrated assessments can be used to measure knowledge transfer and improve corpriate training programs.  In the case of compliance training, assessment transcripts give employers a record of who was trained in what, so in the event of unlawful use or an investigation, they can prove the employee was properly trained. This instructional design features a "NOTES" tab where people can access supplemental content.

SCORM/AICC is a file format in which the test results on an employee is stored. Most talent management platforms allow you to store these types of files on each employee record. But whether you're training employees, resellers or partners, you can use this standard technology to scale certification programs.
